Coyotes, moose and winter vistas

February days. Lots of fog, and still lots of snow. We've had some wonderful visits the last few days from a coyote, a moose and of course our black fox. The 3 or 4 year old bull moose who has been hanging about took a shine to the nicely stacked hay bales in the covered hay shed, helping himself to the odd snack. The hay is for the sheep so although we had to put a stop to his free snack bar, our big moose isn't going hungry. He's been pruning our trees and grazing and doesn't seem to mind our attention one little bit. We got some great video footage of him. It's a beautiful time of year made ever more so by the promise of spring.
